28 Aug to 4 Sep 2020
Retreat Type: 

We’ll use the twin tools of attention and kindness to find our way out of the claustrophobic maze of self-referential views, into the clear light of day. Our time together will be spent mostly in silence, listening to the Dharma, meditating and reflecting. Poetry, film, music and art will help illuminate the themes of compassion and emptiness.
